The Scientific Committee of the ESHG determines topics for these 60 minutes sessions which will best serve the educational needs of the attendees. Particular care is taken to ensure that these sessions address basic issues and focus on the educational aspect. Those sessions are not intended for experts in the respective fields, but are designed to give a general basic introduction to a particular topic.

Note that all of these sessions (except E01) are available as on-demand sessions only. This should enable you to schedule the viewing at your discretion.

On Monday, June 8 at 14:45 – 15:15 and Tuesday, June 9 at 14:15-14:45 attendees will have the possibility to chat directly with educational session speakers.
